Australia’s ‘biggest drug bust’ nets $700m of cocaine

Police in Australia have revealed details of an undercover operation that stopped nearly $700m worth of cocaine (around 1bn AUD, £570m) linked to a Mexican drug cartel from reaching the country.

It is reported to be the biggest drug bust in Australia’s history.

Operation Beech began in November when narcotics officers seized 2.4 tonnes of the drug off the coast of South America.
